We've all been there when all we want to do is cry. You're having a bad day or you simply need to shed some tears that you've held back. If you want a movie that'll make you think, warm your heart, or force you to grab a tissue box, I'm here for you! You don't need a shoulder to cry on you just need a good movie.
